As your mayor, I’ve championed living-wage job creation and partnered with Auburn businesses helping them thrive, meaning hundreds of new businesses. Two of our largest employers have expanded: Boeing and MultiCare – that’s more jobs for Auburn!

As a strong, experienced leader, I’ll continue working for you - protecting taxpayer dollars & improving Auburn’s quality of life - investments in public safety, transportation and neighborhoods. During my term, we’ll have hired 14 additional police officers. I’ve secured grant funding - reducing congestion and improving our roadways. I’ll continue enriching our neighborhoods, improving our parks and increasing opportunities for families.


I’m asking for your vote because together we’ll continue Auburn’s progress and success!

Occupation: Deputy Mayor of the City of Auburn

I have walked Auburn's neighborhoods since April and have heard your concerns.  I have heard you talk about taxes and my opponent's vote on ST3 that raised your property taxes, license tab fees, sales taxes and gas taxes. I question my opponent's decision to add a $20 car tab fee and $400,000 contribution for a Tacoma Hospital.  It is my responsibility to make sure you are advocated for, not just taxed.


You have said your neighborhoods, parks and our public library are not safe.  We are in crisis with homelessness, mental health and crime.  My pledge to you is to help those "in need," not those who want a free ride.


We need a new vision of moving Auburn forward and with the endorsement of 5 of our 7 Council Members we can get the job done.


I am asking for your vote, for Mayor of Auburn.
